Student Leadership Ambassador Scheme

The Student Leadership Ambassador Scheme is run in collaboration with the NHS Leadership Academy and key higher education institutions.

The scheme consists of three elements:

1. Formal leadership development through parts 0 and 1 of the Edward Jenner programme

2. Peer support and action learning sets with other students taking part

3. The opportunity to put learning into practice by setting a goal, working towards it and keeping a reflective log.

The learning objectives of the scheme are:

  1. Facilitate the development of leadership knowledge, skills and behaviours among pre-registration healthcare students, through a programme of education and support​
  1. Invest in the development of healthcare students who are aspirant future clinical leaders.​
  1. Promote leadership development for all healthcare students by encouraging SLAs to use their local influencing channels to develop leadership content of their pre-registration programmes, and provide peer support for leadership development in their programmes.​
  1. Increase knowledge, uptake and use of NHS leadership development resources (e.g. Edward Jenner programme)​
  1. Build a network of partners regionally and locally to influence student leadership development.
